VIU's Academic Programs provide a truly multicultural, international and interdisciplinary environment for students and professors of the member universities.
VIU now has the opportunity to extend the international experience of academic staff who have taught in VIU Academic Programs with the support of Erasmus+ funds.
Professors from the Italian member universities may apply to VIU for funding for a teaching experience at one of the member universities in the EU, in Canada, Russia or in Israel.
Staff mobility for teaching can be in any subject area/academic discipline.
Who can take part?
Teaching staff of the Italian member universities who:
- have taught in the VIU Globalization Program
- have taught in the VIU Intensive Graduate Activities (PhD Academies, Graduate Seminars, Summer Schools)
- wish to develop collaboration with colleagues in one of the destination universities, with a view to proposing a VIU Intensive Graduate Activity
- wish to continue the inter-departmental collaboration that has emerged from VIU joint activities (i.e. candidates who may not have been directly involved in joint VIU activities, but where there is demonstrable engagement between their home university department and the host university department).
The member of the teaching staff may be full professor, associate professor, short-term contract professor, researcher, research fellow, and must be in employment at the member university during the proposed period of staff mobility for teaching.
